Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and change any file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages
that we provide are suitable for various different purposes, based on what you would like to set up and run on them and what experience you have. When your server is ordered with the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access and will be able to manage your online content with a graphical interface, whereas you can still install server-side apps which may be needed by your sites and even by offline applications, including VoIP programs, media encoding software, various frameworks, etcetera. Without any Control Panel, you'll also have full root-level access, but you'll need to do everything using a console. If you choose to use our custom-made Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, there're certain root access limitations, but this configuration is the most convenient to control. In this way, you can choose the virtual server plan which you need.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up some third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at registration. When you pick our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to perform a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
